Thanks to your generosity and the generosity of nearly 1,000 people like you, including the support of foundations, corporations, and matching gift programs, we were able to exceed our goals. We surpassed our goal for the Fund for Brewster, raising more than $1.18 million in support for current operations. We put Fund for Brewster gifts to work immediately, in support of our people, campus, and programs.
In addition to donations to the Fund for Brewster, we raised an additional $2.11 million in support of special capital projects and endowment contributions, including our newest residence hall, Toad Hall, the Reimagine Rogers project, our prize-winning robotics program, the New Hampshire Student Leadership Program, need-based scholarship support, and more.
In 2018-19, 184 people contributed to Brewster for the first time ever -- thank you! And 230 loyal donors contributed for at least three years in a row, as members of the Brewster Faithful.
Brewster currently has 5,902 active alumni living in 45 different countries. Our current students come from 22 different countries and 27 different states. 80 percent of students are boarders and 20 percent are day students. 25 percent of students are students of color. 20 percent are international students.
Thank you to each and every Brewster supporter for your belief in our mission and our vision for the future.
